Installation of grill lights

Recommended Posts

After I installed mine I was not happy with the color of the lights recommended in this thread (yellow vs orange).  I wanted them to match my parking lights.  I researched a little more and came across F-150LED’s.  https://www.f150leds.com/products/15-18_raptor_grill_led?_pos=1&_sid=0de280cf8&_ss=r
these are extremely easy to install and look great.

Has anyone done this on a Silverado LTTB grill? I'm interested in doing this but want to see if how folks have handled attaching the lights to the LTTB style grill

The lights are about 1.5 inches wide and about 3/4 inch deep.  They are attached by 3m tape.  Don’t let that scare you.  These things are STUCK!

Thanks. I didnt read your earlier post about the f150 lights having 3m tape. Here I was thinking you still had to attached them like the other version.

trying to install the f150 LED lights but for some reason cant get them to turn on. I connected a fuse tap to right parking lamp fuse.

 

Anyone know why they don't get power?

 

Edit: got it to work

Would love to do this to my Sierra, did you take the grill off and drill a few holes for the wires coming out of the lights or is there a different way?

UPDATE: Don't waste your time on the Amazon sourced LEADTOP specific lights I used.  One of the lights burnt out after about 3 months followed by another a couple weeks later and a third one today.  Shows you get what you pay for.  FYI, the friction fitment held up GREAT.  They didn't move at all.

 

I need to find some high quality lights that don't burn out so quickly.  Did anybody find a better price for the 3 light Raptor looking setup shown in this thread.  The link provided says they cost $80.  I won't pay that much just out of principle

Just saved me 50 bucks, they seem far superior than the Amazon lights, I installed them on the TB grille they look integrated ill post pics as soon as I get the fuse tap I ordered, if anyone is still interested.

It was very easy.  I bought a micro fuse tap and connected the positive wire from the lighting harness to the right parking light fuse...the ground wire I simply pulled out a bolt (between the radiator and fuse box) and secured the ground wire with the reinserted screw.  The three lights are attached to the grill with 3m tape and are very secure.  I love the look they give to this  big grill! The lights are easily installed in 5 minutes and used the enclosed zip ties to help hide the wires...I soldered the positive wire to the micro wire tap and soldered the negative wire to the wire loop (not sure what you call the flat round washer with a wire crimp for mounting wires).

I'm looking to do the same set up and waiting for LEDs to arrive. Wanted to know which bolt did you use for the negative. Hoping to use your knowledge to make the install as painless as possible. Thanks.

      Like new, Pulsar LT for sale, bought direct from manufacturer. Box is included as well, just can't upload a pic of it for some reason.
       
      Had this installed on my 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, took this off when I traded it in. Works great, ~10 months of ownership.
       
      Looking for $400, shipping included, within USA. Venmo/Paypal/Zelle preferred.

      What suggestions or advice is available for buying a GMC | Chevy truck? What should I watch out for -- the GOOD and BAD? 
       
      I want to come back to the GMC | Chevy family. For over 20 years, we owned a 98 GMC Suburban, putting over 230k miles on it myself, and I LOVED that truck. Other than typical wear and tear -- I never had any problems or issues with my Suburban.
       
      I am looking at 2016-2022 -- GMC | Chevy 1500 | 2500 series, all trims (4x4), except the base models. My budget is around $35k plus'ish; yes, I understand my budget limits what I can get. I am a USAF retired veteran living off a fixed income.
       
      Yes, we tow hitch pull RVs and various trailers, but not as often as before. What are the GOOD, BAD, and UGLY these days on the GMC | Chevy trucks? Is the additional price for either diesel and/or 2500 worth it?
       
      SHORT STORY: so, a few years ago, I bought a 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 EcoDiesel 6cyl w/turbo Lonestar -- well, I have been disappointed with Chrysler | Fiat (FCA). They lied about the EcoDiesel, and after forced recall ECM updates, they sucked all performance and mpg from the truck. Buying a newish GMC | Chevy, I do not want to fall into what happened with my 2015 Ram. When I had my suburban, I never had so many recalls, been lied to, and never had poor performance.
       
      Thanks for any suggestions that you will provide -- Gary (ExFalconFxr)

      As the title says, post your long travel set up with the who and why! I'm tired of not being able to find long travel builds to copy off of. Custom or bolt on, doesn't matter. Post pictures of the before and after glass sides if you got them.
      If a thread like this already exists please share below or if you have a thread for your build. Hopefully this gets some serious attention for the full size community, the Toyotas get all the long travel attention.

      Hey Everyone-
      I have a 2022 AT4 (5700mi) and its it has a shudder/hesitation during steady and/or light throttle acceleration between 25 and 70 MPH.  Anyone else experiencing this or has and got it "fixed".  Reproduced it for a ride along with the dealer, but need to figure out a plan or approach to fix this.  They have mentioned maybe a fuel injector, maybe a new transmission....

      Thoughts? Recommendations?  

      Also, what site does everyone use to search for TSB's?
